I Love Sweater Leggings

My new favorite thing is sweater leggings. They are amazing and very warm. If you don’t have some, stock up because they are like sweaters for your legs. Did you hear me? Sweaters…For…Your…Legs! Your mind has been blown, and you’re welcome!

They are great to sleep in, or to wear out. They look great with dresses and boots. Plus there are so many options to chose from. Look below!

Fall 2010 Trends

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!
If you have been following the shows in New York, you have probably seen lots of leather, velvet, fur, menswear for women, and leggings.  New York is telling the world that those are the trends that are in for the fall. PETA will not be happy about this.  Two collections that used a bit of all of those elements were the Altuzarra and Alexander Wang collections. Photos from Style.com.
The Altuzarra collection had lots of leather, velvet, menswear influences. A lot of the pieces were very tight and structured. Some of the tuxedos and fur coats reminded me of Tom Ford’s run at Gucci  There was one catsuit that reminded me of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman catsuit from Batman. Many of the leather pieces had stitching criss crossing along the outer parts of the garments.
The Alexander Wang collection had plenty of menswear, leather, and velvet to go around.  Velvet was draped over the arms or made into short dresses. Some velvet hung from backpacks. Chunky platform heels were draped with the bottoms of extra long leggings.  There was an excellent motorcycle jacket that Wang elongated all the way to the floor. Some people were put off by the menswear look in  the collection. It was either a you like it or not collection. I must say, the unwearableness of the collection caught me off guard, but I can appreciate the art of it all.

The Fat and Skinny/We Love Color Midwinter Contest


 

Hey everyone! Thanks for the birthday wishes! My readers are so cool, sweet, and supportive. I really LURVE you guys! I had a really fun time on my birthday. I usually don’t get excited about my bdays, but I really had a good time. Also, since the majority of you guys like the header, it is gonna stay up for a while. Thanks for the feedback everyone. 

 

If you look at the title, you will see that I am throwing some kind of contest featuring We Love Colors. We Love Colors was nice enough to give me some leggings to review. If you have been following my blog throughout the past year, you will know that I love We Love Colors. They have awesome prices, colors, products, and customer service. I am not just saying that because they gave me free tights. I also buy tights from their website from time to time. 

WLC sent me some of their footless tights/leggings in Scarlet Red and Teal. As usual the colors are bright, which really helps them stand out in your wardrobe. The tights are made up of 90% Nylon and 10% Lycra, so they are really thick, soft and stretchy. Another thing I love about WLC is that they come in straight sizes and plus sizes. Everybody can get some tights.

 

The one thing I will say about these footless tights is this: THEY ARE NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO WEAR LEGGINGS AS PANTS. If you do this, you will be shamed, because these tights are thick for stocking-like material, but they are not thick like cotton leggings or even jeggings. I don’t want you to be full of shame because you bought the yellow tights to go with your blue t-shirt and Marty at the post office saw your Strawberry Shortcake polka dotted thong. NO MA’AM!
